Welcome!

What is Nourishing Change?

Why are we doing this?

We are a wellness & lifestyle company focusing on healthy eating & living with the seasons

 

Our mission is to ignite a joyful reconnection to nature’s wisdom - body, mind, and plate. We want to promote a sense of interconnectedness, consider our impact, and build more sustainable lives. 

We're doing this because we believe true nourishment lives at the intersection between what we eat, what we think, and how we live.

Stay connected and we'll keep sharing all the tips, tricks & wisdom we have to help you live a more nourished life.

Our Approach

Anchored in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our approach to wellness and nourishment encourages deep connections with nature. Each season brings its own unique elements and energy that we experience both out in the world and inside our selves. TCM breaks the year up into five seasons: spring, summer, harvest, fall, and winter, and we have done the same here. The first step in everything we do is to think about what season we're in. 

Spring

Summer

Harvest

Fall

Winter

We believe that real nourishment is holistic, focusing on the whole person and every aspect of their life: body, mind, and spirit. We also believe that all beings should be well nourished, and that includes other people, plants, animals, and the natural world. So we've organized our seasonal wisdom into three parts: how we eat, how we think, and how we live. And just as it does in nature, this all grows up from our roots.

Eat

Think

Live

I prefer to have fruit infused water verses a sweeter drink so I omit sweetener or just add a very small amount of raw honey to my aqua fresca. But play around with the amounts to find the combination that suits your taste.

Ahhh, the magical freshness of mint. Everyone has experienced it in one way or another. Be it a stick of gum, a cup of mint tea or fresh mint chopped as a garnish. Mint is a backyard staple in the summer and a tea cupboard favourite year round, but did you know it’s a...

We’ve all heard it 1000 times – if you want to eat well, loose weight or be healthy you should eat more raw foods and salad. There is no question that leafy greens, whole foods and lots of vegetables are good for you, but what you might want to examine is HOW you eat t...

Heat, lush gardens, fresh food, bare feet and outdoor living. There’s nothing like it!

As with every season, summer brings with it it’s own unique blend of gifts. Our gardens and markets are filled with fresh naturally ripened foods. Social calendars are filled with pat...

Cooling, pungent and bitter- sweet, watercress is a natural diuretic helping to clear excess fluid from the body. It impacts the lungs, stomach, bladder and kidney systems in TCM and strengthens the Qi (or vital energy) in the body.

Spring Foods and Cleansing

Spring is a season full of powerful, forceful and creative energy. Just like that little seed that pushes through all the resistance of the surrounding earth after the dormant winter, we too have seeds of inspiration, hopes, dreams or plans...

Super Simple, Very Green Soup.

I adore this soup - It’s so incredibly simple and cooks up super fast. I use it as a breakfast soup most days in the winter and a great addition to a spring detox as we transition into the warmer summer months. I basically love it any time...

Lemon Ginger Elixir


I found myself with a bag of lemons that didn’t have a lot of life left in them and I’m mindful of how important vitamin C is to boost our immune system, so I decided to make a home version of a store bought elixir that I love.

Super simple, full...

Winter foods should be warm, cooked and full of healthy fats and nutrients so we can stay warm and nourished all season long. These power packed nuts are roasted with some of the yummiest winter spices and make a wonderful snack and will help keep your insides warm and...
